Toni L. Kamins, Journalist
On the Trail of Jewish History in France
Toni Kamins is a veteran journalist who has covered dozens of different subjects for magazines and newspapers. Born and raised in New York City, she went to graduate school in Paris back in the 1970s. After visiting France for long and short periods for decades, she is finally happy to call Paris home.
Toni has always had a passion for history in general and Jewish history in particular and has published numerous articles on many of its aspects. In the late 1990’s she decided to combine this with her love of travel, and in 2001, her Complete Jewish Guide to France and Complete Jewish Guide to Britain and Ireland were published by St. Martin’s Press.
Today she has moved on to writing about other subjects–US health-care policy and senior citizen issues–among others, but Jewish history and its visible legacy in Europe are still very close to her heart and she continues to write about both.
